Ricca Publishes Paper
Dr. Bernard Ricca, Director of the Graduate Program in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, has had a paper published in Complicity: An International Journal of Complexity and Education.
Ricca’s paper, “Beyond Teaching Methods: A Complexity Approach,” defines four important components to teaching. They include: a need for mutual influence among teachers, students, the content being taught and the curriculum; enculturation into a scholarly community; reflection on the part of teachers and students; and a need for teacher improvisation.
Complicity is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes original articles on all aspects of education that are informed by the idea of complexity (in its technical, applied, philosophical, theoretical, or narrative manifestations). The journal strives to serve as a forum for both theoretical and practical contributions and to facilitate the exchange of diverse ideas and points of view related to complexity in education.
